Mutual Aid

It’s a tough time for all of us. Our lives are being affected in so many ways. Away from all of the news headlines many are doing what most humans do best – helping each other.

Facebook is awash with groups set up for just that reason. A group in Stowmarket was set up because a Dad couldn’t find nappies for his young baby – he’s all sorted now but the group ‘Help Stowamrket Through‘ now has over two thousand members asking questions and offering help.

On a national scale a community group called ‘Corvid-19 Mutual Aid UK‘ has been set up to act as a directory for community groups around the UK to help promote the existence of these groups.

There is now a website where you can find information about groups in your local area: the site also includes guidelines and templates that are useful if you are setting up your own group.
